Re: Lightwater Valley

Ok so I've not been to this park, but Iv'e done some research so this isnt just a hatchet job, but I sure found an interesting You Tube video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXMgUT4hMJM Ok that Dark Raptor ride looks like fun, despite the stupid mine entrance. The Ultimate, you know it looks unusal...

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion

What if instead of Sub Terra, they did what VR was actually good for, and did a soldiers eye view of the Nemesis creature, its orgin, and how it was defeated. Something that tells a very similar story, but in a far more 2020 way.

Ok full disclousure i've never been on the Ghost Train, but I really like the t-shirt on the right, just as a peice of art. It's got shades of a British set sci-fi movie set in a dystopian London. Possibly related to the Daleks.

Re: Alton Towers Stargazing Pods - Opening April 12th 2019

In a surprise turn of events, this article suggests that they will be installing (fake) windows in the roofs of the pods after all: In addition, 'fake windows' are being installed in the ceilings so families can enjoy constellations inspired by the theme park and see them come alive with a special ...

Re: Creative Ideas For new AT Attractions

Isn't this what a runaway mine train is for? Whenever you see mine trains in movies or cartoons, the truck always changes tracks at the last minute, to avoid falling off a cliff. What if you put the points in dip, so that as you appoarch the dip on an upslope you see broken track on the other end of...

Re: Creative Ideas For new AT Attractions

I am guessing there could be a safety concern, but what if at the last moment, a black track rose from a black pit (or made to look like a pit), making it look like you are going head first into a pit, but the track goes up just in time to prevent (or the pit does down to make the track suddenly app...

Could stick a new merch shop in there selling Thirteen and Rita stuff, there’s much more room in there compared to Thirteen’s old shop

Re: Alton Towers Stargazing Pods - Opening April 12th 2019

Dont get me wrong, if you are a couple. and its nice weather, these would be a cheaper option. However if its wet, if you have a child, I just dont see people opting for the hassle of outdoor plumbing.

Honestly could they not jsut put some serious decoration on the Thorpe Park Shark idea.

Re: Alton Towers Resort Merchandise

Some nice Wicker Man t-shirts there (and t-shirts generally) certainly better than the ones on sale last season. That being said that 7 pack of mugs is tempting, even if I have 5 of them already (from the previous set) and a large Wicker Man one. Note to self: if you do go to Alton Towers, do not ev...

Re: Creative Ideas For new AT Attractions

How about a rollercoaster with an invisible track? Is it possible? Obviously the track has to be there, but the track could be made transparent or at least enough to fool someone coming out of a corkscrew or a loop? For all the safety you know is there before getting on the coaster, that split secon...

As well as that, the entire pit has been given a jet wash and the indoor areas of the queue and exit have been freshened up.

Should this happen every off season or even on a day the ride is closed for some other reason?

Is there an option for replacing it with Steel Vengence out right? As for the Neighbours, they should really consider moving, if they dont like living next door to a theme park.
